When it comes to her patients’ health, employing one school of thought isn’t enough for naturopathic doctor Mai Nguyen-Pham. That’s why, at All Naturopathic Clinic, she incorporates five wellness philosophies— clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, lifestyle counseling, physical medicine, and homeopathic medicine—to broaden her approach to improving patients’ well-being. With physical medicine’s colon-hydrotherapy and massage sessions, Dr. Nguyen-Pham helps improve her patients’ circulatory and immune systems, whereas her understanding of botanical medicine allows her to prescribe natural dietary supplements to support function of the liver, digestive tract, or respiratory system. From this diverse repertoire, Dr. Nguyen-Pham creates a custom regimen of treatments to aid each patient in any number of wellness goals, such as losing weight, overcoming insomnia, or becoming Fabio.
A quartet of tatami welcomes guests into a traditional Japanese dining experience, replete with short-legged tables and floor mats to sit on. To help diners become one with the culturally distinctive surrounds, servers dispense and occasionally spoon-feed classic entrees that include broiled salmon covered in teriyaki sauce, korean barbecue ribs, and deep-fried chicken katsu. Patrons can also dine at American-style tables in the main dining room or sidle up to the sushi bar to ponder 20 nigiri and 21 specialty rolls with names such as Salmon Killer and I Love Shrimp.:m]]
In Dr. Stanley Teplick's 30 years of experience, he's trained at the Mayo Clinic, served as a professor of ophthalmology, and performed 25,000 refractive surgeries. One such procedure was performed live on television, when KPTV Oregon anchor Shauna Parsons beamed her experience live into the Fox News studios. Parsons wasn’t the only high-profile patient to rely on Dr. Teplick's skills, which have also plucked spectacles off the famous faces of professional athletes, TV personalities, and Miss Oregon 2008. Whether glasses don't fit the wearers' lifestyles or patients are simply tired of harvesting contact lenses from their thorny vines, Dr. Teplick's surgeries provide solutions to a wide array of peeper problems. His practice also expands to care for the rest of the face by offering cosmetic injections and chemical peels.

Born To Ride Cycle and Fitness is a spinning-only fitness center, meaning this is the place for anyone serious about cycle fitness.

Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
